A LOT has already been said about this match and whatever happens I think it will be tense and tight with the play-off final spot on the line until the sides meet again in Edinburgh on Saturday.
Rangers will be hoping home advantage, a huge crowd and feelgood factor after the news chairman in waiting Dave King has been passed fit and proper to take over the club helps them to a first-leg advantage.
King will take his seat in the director’s box after flying in from his home in South Africa but I’m not sure he’ll be smiling at the end of 90 minutes and believe the prices are weighted too much in favour of the Ibrox men.
Rangers edged into the semi-finals with a 3-2 aggregate win over Queen of the South and they were pushed all the way while Hibs players sunned themselves on a six-day training trip to La Manga.
In parts of both ties with Queens there were good moments for Rangers but at other times they looked vulnerable and Easter Road gaffer Alan Stubbs won’t have seen anything to fear.
Hibs have beaten the Ibrox men three times this season but lost the last time they met – and the one thing about them that’s questioned is bottle or the lack of it.
Stubbs’s men recovered to win six of their last seven games and pip Gers to runners-up spot. Crucially that meant missing the Queens games so while Hibs will be refreshed will they be able to hit the ground running?
I’m sure it will be tight and tense tonight and can’t see either side winning by more than one goal.
Against Rangers he grabbed two at Ibrox back in September and finished the season with eight goals in 10 games.
